Respite Care

Respite Care services offer parents, family members, and guardians temporary relief from the responsibilities of caring for a family member with disabilities.  Families of any adult with a developmental disability and any child with, or at risk for, delayed development or a developmental disability are eligible to receive respite care.

Respite is available on an regular, occasional, or emergency basis to meet each individual's needs.  Families decide where and when services will be provided, whether in the client’s home, the provider’s home, or in another location.  Services can be provided for an hour, a day, a weekend, or a week.

In FY 2016 across the agency respite was provided to:

  • 119 adults participated in an array of programs, including the three described above
  • 178 extended family members received services to help them better understand how to address the emotional and developmental needs of their developmentally disabled family member(s).
  • 57 (est.) individuals received responses following requests for information
